|Cam Holley skippered Tufts to a win in the 10th B race|
ENFIELD, N.H. – The Jumbo co-ed sailing team was eighth of 18 teams at the 78th Professor Schell Trophy hosted by Dartmouth College on Saturday and Sunday.
Tufts was led by its B division dinghy, which placed fifth with a 100 score across 14 races. Tufts scored 125 in A's for a 225 team total. They were 15 behind seventh-place Boston College (210) and 21 ahead of ninth-place Connecticut College (246).
Yale won the regatta with a 77 in A's and 70 in B's for a 147 final.
Seniors Florian Eenkema van Dijk and Cam Holley skippered Tufts' B races, with Holley taking the third through 14th after Eenkema van Dijk handled the first two. Sophomore Duke Saunders crewed the first two races and senior Ian Morgan worked with Holley in the third through 14th. Holley and Morgan won the 10th race and posted runner-up finishes in the third, fourth and 12th starts.
For A's senior Jackson McCoy skippered the first through 13th races and Chris Keller had the 14th. Junior Emma Clutterbuck crewed the first through 12th races with classmate Emily Calandrella taking over for the last two. McCoy and Clutterbuck were third in the 10th race and had fourths in the first and fourth starts.
Saturday saw rain, hail, snow, and a wintrery mix. The breeze started out SSE at 5-12 and was great sailing despite the precipitation. The 3A and 3B races were completed before the breeze shut off and heavy rain began. Later in the afternoon an ESE breeze came and five more races in each division were contested. Sailors arrived to a cold and calm Sunday morning, but a nice Southerly filled in and race 9A began at 10:05 AM in 6-10 knots. A shifty southerly prevailed through 13A and B, and around 12:30PM fleets went in for a lunch break as the lake was becalmed. A fickle westerly with hits of North and South gave way to a true southerly, which allowed races 14A and B to be run around 2:40 PM.
